The death of Mrs. I. M. Davis, of Fonda, which occurred Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock, after an illness extending over many weeks, while not entirely unexpected, was unlooked for as soon by the friends outside of the family circle. Her death was due to a cancerous growth in the stomach. Mrs. Davis was conscious of all about her until the last and bore her sufferings with Christian fortitude. Her age was 72 years. Mrs. Davis was born north of the village of Fonda and was the daughter of Adam Fonda. Early in life she was married to Mr. Davis, and her life was spent in the village of Fonda with but few intermissions, surrounded by her interesting family, and friends, to whom she was devoted... The funeral took place from the family home on Broadway, Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and was attended by a large concourse of friends several being unable to gain admittance to the house. The Rev. Dr. DeBaun, pastor of the Reformed church, which Mrs. Davis joined early in life, officiated... The interment took place at Evergreen cemetery... She is survived by her husband, five daughters, Mrs. George F. Mills, Mrs. J. C. Boyd, Mrs. Everett Kennedy, Mrs. Emmet Noxon, Miss Marion Davis, and one son. E. Corning Davis. Two children, one daughter and one young son, died some years ago. The bearers at the funeral were members of the family, J. C. Boyd, Emmet Noxon, Everett Kennedy, E. Corning Davis and Nathan Fonda, a nephew of the deceased. Johnstown NY Daily Republican, Thursday, November 10, 1898.
